Original Paintings

In my most recent work I’m searching for the unexpected through abstract expression. The warmth of the palettes and energy of the marks are familiar. But sometimes an odd mark or a surprising color stands out.

That’s what I love so much about doing this work.


This series was originally done as a kind of experiment. I worked on them all at once, systematically making marks using each color. My brush strokes and marks—a 'little dance' across the paper. The colors were bold and beautiful. Colors I'd never used before. They are small—6 inches square. Every piece is exciting—intriguing. They are a little bit messy, like sketches, but once finished and hung they truly are little jewels.
